MAC Address change after suspend (atl1e)
|||Ubuntu EeePC Kernel||
Occasionally after suspend, the MAC address for the wired network card on a Eee 901/1000/1000h changes to something other than the correct MAC address. I've had this behavior confirmed by 2 other independent sources on IRC (#eeepc on FreeNode).
On a network with DHCP, this results in a new IP address being allocated after a suspend. It also results in the interface name changing, and a bunch of bogus entries being left in /etc/udev/
Note: This does not happen always. I've had it happen irregularly. When trying to directly force it to happen, it took at least 5 suspends in the space of 3 minutes to get it to happen.
Applies to the 2.6.24-21-eeepc kernel and I've had an independent confirmation that the same bug exists in 2.6.24-22-eeepc kernel in the array.org hardy-proposed repository.
